“Nothing is impossible. Not if you can imagine it.”

—Professor Hubert Farnsworth

I’m a scientific assistant and passionate Python programmer at OFFIS in Oldenburg, Germany. My current work centers around Smart Grid simulation and the development of mosaik.


My programming career started with HTML and PHP. I created Halo Orbit, which became — by a lot of work and passion — the biggest German-speaking Halo fansite at that time.

I studied computer science with a focus on ecoinformatics and graduated with a diploma (the German equivalent to a master’s degree). During my studies, I learned Java, improved my PHP skills, tried C / C++, and in 2008 ultimately found Python, which I instantly fell in love with.

Since my days as a web programmer, I’ve been working with Linux servers and desktops. I mainly work on a Mac, though.
